A collaboration between Birmingham Royal Ballet, Hong Kong Ballet and Corey Baker Dance is to be screened through the BBC's Culture in Quarantine initiative to mark Earth Day on 22 April.
Named after (and set beneath) Birmingham's (in)famous Spaghetti Junction, the short film raises the impact of climate change and is part of Corey Baker's large collaboration and work with Birmingham Royal Ballet, Birmingham Hippodrome and Arts Council England in celebration of Chinese New Year 2020.
Corey Baker Dance has an international reputation for creating a diverse array of work across film, TV, theatre, using unusual locations and reaching non-traditional theatre audiences. His first film Antarctica: The First Dance, was filmed on the icy contient celebrating Antarctica while we still have it. The film was commissioned by The Space and Channel 4 Random Acts and featured Royal New Zealand Ballet principal dancer Madeleine Graham. Antarctica: The First Dance has been seen by over 5 million people around the globe to date.
Lying Together, the companion film for Spaghetti Junction, featuring Hong Kong Ballet was filmed on rooftops and urban green spaces of Hong Kong and also shares a message around climate change. Lying Together will be released later this year.
Set to music by acclaimed band FKJ, Spaghetti Junction was created in partnership with Birmingham Royal Ballet and Hong Kong Ballet, and funded by Arts Council England, Birmingham Hippodrome, West Midlands Growth Company and Southside BID
You can watch the world premiere screening of Spaghetti Junction at 07.00(am) BST on BBC.CO.UK/ARTS on Wednesday 22 April, Earth Day.
Earth Day started in 1970 and is now the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 190 countries to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide and drive positive action for our planet.
